Mani2 in Nove Mesto
Manitou riders take home 2nd place finishes in XCM and XC at 1st World cup stage of 2023 showing just how the #scienceofsmooth translates to the science of success. Katazina Sosna climbed atop the second step of the women’s XCM podium after laying claim to an amazing performance aboard her Torpado frame built with Purple Hayes Dominion brakes, Reynolds XC wheels, ProTaper bars and Manitou suspension. Joshua Dubau put forth an ride on his Manitou equipped Rockrider frame to finish in second place in the men’s XCO. The course for both races represented a challenge for the riders and conditions made for an even more insidious day of racing against the world’s top talent. Emerging with not one but two fantastic results at the pinnacle of cycling in one weekend is a fantastic start to what we hope is to be an even better season.
